Given the choice between an elite goalie and an elite winger, I think that you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who wouldn't choose the goalie. For an example, look at Florida: they had Bure and a young Luongo, and it was Luongo who stole them wins more than Pavel.
On the other hand, if you think that Ladd will turn out to be an elite 1st-line winger and Montoya will become just another goalie, then you have a good point.
Either way, there's not much the Rangers could have done about Carolina picking Ladd 4th...
